Camber circular walk

Yesterday, six of us did an occasional slow but sure walk-from Rye along the Rother to Camber Sands, across these then inland over  East Guldeford Levels and back-7.4 miles according to the GPS.  

We couldn't see a great deal for much of the time due to fog [makes a change from wind, rain and gales], but noted a couple of Rock Pipits and a Common Seal along the river, the recently cleaned bank still looking good. Still foggy when we were on the beach; it's always a bit of a treat to look at all the shells cast up here, I was taken with the imposing Sand Gapers, whose bulk allowed the build-up of miniature sand dunes during the latest storm.

Crossing the Levels, the fog had lifted and we could see at last, noting perhaps as many as 8 Buzzards, 20 Fieldfares, a rather unseasonal Siskin, and A Great White Egret on Moneypenny Dimsel- thanks to the Dictionary of Sussex Dialect [Hall 1957 after Parish 1879] for this excellent word for a freshwater body too big to be a pond, but not big enough for a lake.
